Carl Rakosi Reading and Interview on KPFA's Ode To Gravity, 1971


Published May 13, 1971


Carl Rakosi (born November 6, 1903, Berlin) was one of the four so-called Objectivist poets of the thirties along with Louis Zukofsky, George Oppen and Charles Reznikoff. The Minneapolis poet gave up his art in 1941 to become a social worker and psychotherapist under the pseudonym Callman Rawley; he resumed writing in 1964 and his book Amulet was published by New Directions in 1967. Late in 1971 his new book, Ere-Voice, appeared. Rakosi reads both early and late works and talks with Charles Amirkhanian about his unusual career and work. Recorded at KPFA on May 13, 1971. Carl Rakosi died June 24, 2004, in San Francisco at the age of 100.
